Shannon Goins is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) who relocated to Albuquerque in June 2018 from the greater Phoenix area. Originally from Little Rock Arkansas, Shannon begin her training in 2013 in the field of massage therapy.

Her advanced training includes Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) and Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT), Medical Massage,Energetic Myofascial Release, and CranioSacral Therapy.  

Shannon received her Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) training from KLOSE Training. Her Medical Massage and Myofascial Release specialty certifications were earned at the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ.  Assisted Lymphatic Training was completed with RightWay Health & Wellness in Canton, Georgia.  CranioSacral Training has been obtained through the Southwest Institute for Healing Arts in Tempe, AZ and through Cranio Sacral School of the Masters in Tigers, New Mexico.

It was during her training and Medical Massage that she fell in love with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) work. To that end, she pursued the respected CLT (Certified Lymphedema Therapist) certification to help people who suffer from lymphedema.  

In June of 2018 she became certified in Electro-Lymphatic Drainage (also called "Assisted Lymphatic Drainage") which uses a device called the XP2 that effectively releases stagnated lymph.

The CLT certification proved to be the ideal advanced training avenue because it built on the foundations of Oncology Massage, Elder Massage, and adaptive massage for various medical conditions that constituted the core of her medical massage training.

"My own mother suffered from lymphedema following a double radical mastectomy in 1992, but she was given little to no information about the condition. As a result, she suffered severe depression and social anxiety until she passed in 2013.

Even now, so if you medical professionals are well-trained and lymphedema risk, prevention, and treatment. I want to serve as a resource for people to get them that information and quality treatment that makes a difference and how they feel and feel about themselves.

Since becoming a CLT, I have learned that lymphatic drainage doesn't just apply to people with lymphedema. It can help people who have had surgery, who have Lyme disease, Alzheimer's, surgery, etc. It can also be used to enhance athletic performance and improve how we looking feel through draining a puffy face to providing a powerful detoxifying effect.

My main objective when working with clients, no matter what brings them to my office, is to have them leave feeling significantly better than when they walked in. Making a difference in the lives of others is the most rewarding thing that I can do."  - Shannon Goins

Shannon's training also includes PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy.

Experience

Certified Lymphedema Therapist

Completed 135 hour training for Lymphedema Therapy with KLOSE Training. This training included advanced Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Techniques, bandaging, and garment fitting for both upper and lower body. The KLOSE CLT program also teaches in-depth anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system, as well as thorough information regarding co-conditions (co-morbidities) such as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), diabetes, etc. to ensure that clients of therapists graduating from the program will be treated safely.

Certified Myofascial Release Therapist

Completed 100 hour certification training in Energetic Myofascial Release at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Certified Medical Massage Therapist

Completed 100 hour certification program in Medical Massage at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.

Certified Assisted Lymphatic Therapist

Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) utilizes a device that electronically excites three noble gasses contained in hand-blown glass wands. When placed on the skin, the device transmits ions that break up coagulated lymph proteins and change it from a jello-like state to more of a water-like state, thereby permitting it to flow freely in the lymphatic system. The procedure is painless and highly effective, especially in complex lymphatic cases.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Reflexology services

by Fay on Sep 30
it was overall a great experience

Very professional, extremely knowledgeable and has made a difference in our health care!!

I just had a hour session with Shannon on a Friday and now it is Monday and I can't say how much improvement I have felt and it is still working. As soon as the treatment was done I felt my whole head and chest open up and it has stayed that way which is incredible because I have had asthma since I was 5 and have been on steroids for as long as I can remember. Now I have lessened my use of those inhalers and I feel great. I have so much more energy as well. I can't wait to see what other changes I will be able to see as I continue with this therapy. Shannon has a wealth of knowledge, is thorough and has a true do no harm attitude!! I already have my next appt in the works!!!

Just a great overall experience with a smart and talented therapist. The most thorough therapist I've ever experienced. I'm so sorry she is moving out of state.
by Ashley on May 22
She was amazing! She's so full of knowledge and I was very comfortable. I signed up for a 90 min and extended to the 120 min in the middle of the massage. She gave me relief from the pain I had come in with and I'm very bummed she will be taking her skills to another state.

I’ve been receiving massage for years - Shannon’s technique, knowledge and skill far exceeded most other therapists I’ve seen. She took the time to explain her recommendations and reasoning AND delivered results. She dramatically reduced my pain! Thank you.
